Overview

 By The Water by Sharyn Rothstein, directed by Ron Law

Charlotte Premiere

Hurricane Sandy has just ravaged the lifelong Staten Island home of Marty and Mary Murphy. But the storm has ripped apart more than just the walls: with their neighbors too devastated to stay, the couple’s beloved community is in danger of disappearing forever. When the Murphys’ sons arrive to help their parents dig out, past betrayals come rushing to the surface. With fierce compassion and poignant humor, BY THE WATER reminds us that the very powers that tear us apart can also bring us together.

“Four stars! BY THE WATER is a solid play about a dissolving world; the Murphys may have built on sand, but Rothstein builds on bedrock. This Superstorm drama is a force of nature.” —Time Out (New York)
